Surprising little Caribbean place

First, very clean. Cleaner than most. The maintenance / cleaning staff really make this above average for restaurant cleanliness. Especially the rest rooms. Food is very good. Shrimp Scampi was tasty, not too spicy. Crab cake was good but spicy. Coconut cake was wonderful.

The menu is extensive, with many original items, such as the sauteed scallop and spinach salad with orange ginger dressing that my husband ordered. Mine was more traditional--fried oysters--but also delicious. Both the scallops and the oysters were perfectly cooked... More

Cyprus Grill is a fantastic choice for seafood. It is my favorite restaurant in Elizabeth City. The prices are reasonable and the food is delicious. They are also very helpful when hosting a dinner party for a birthday. They go an extra mile.

Went here for lunch today. We order blackened rock fish sandwich and had a small spinach salad. We also had chips and salsa. Everything was excellent! Our server was excellent as well! We will be coming back again.
